Sunanda Pushkar, the wife of senior Congress leader Shashi Tharoor was found murdered in her hotel room on January 17, 2014. Her death had raised several suspicions and later the AIIMS had confirmed that her death was not natural.
Recently, a report on DNA had stated that it was clear to the Delhi Police from the beginning that Sunanda’s death was not natural. Sunanda’s autopsy report had reportedly revealed that she had died of poisoning. There were injury and injection marks on her body. The Delhi Police have also faced criticism for their reported negligence in the investigations and the AIIMS board that submitted the autopsy report also had pulled up the Delhi Police for not including circumstantial evidence statements regarding the physical injuries on Pushkar’s body.
